I am trying to render using maya software. It is a pretty large scene (70megs) with fluids, particles and hair. The render layer I am trying to render takes about 2 seconds with a single frame but when I try to batch render it not only takes about 10 minutes to begin, then for each frame it takes several minutes. I have my fluids and particles cached, not sure whats up. I've read about disconnecting the network cable and tried that to no avail. I also have to batch render in MR and that also takes much longer than single frame rendering. Any ideas on what's going on here?
